Word from probably our most 'dedicated' member - Florian - in that he is safely back on the ferry to France. This, only 24 hours after getting ON the ferry at Calais to attend the event!!! There is a fine line between madness and genius.........I havent quite worked out which applies in this instance
Yes Carl, the same quastion my wife asked me
Ok, others would have a week all-in-club-holiday for this sum, but I had a fantastic sunday and would never change.
It was my personal record, beaten the fastest visit of 2012 to the Coventry meeting
> 2,250km in less than 48 hours incl. Ferry, Hotel and the meeting day
3.25 fuel fillings scoured all pipes and bewared the mechanical parts of rust
Fun fact: My TT needed 10.8L/100km (26.16 mpg) only
I drove comfy, using the speed control mostly, enjoying the dull hum of the exhausts ... no radio, just a kind of meditation and relaxation.
Anyway the french took a photo on the tour back
It was a wonderful day between awesome enthusiasts and stunning cars.
To confirm my prize for the furtherst travelled award
the absolutely cleanest engine bay I'd ever seen ... even the smallest screws looked like new
A real stunning nitpickers job on a V12
The devil is always in the detail of course
The most missed it but Davids details about the different XJ were very interesting
Happily I had a "flexi-ticked" for the ferry boat the waiting time was 10 minutes only
Just enough for a pee break
The scenery while leaving your Island made me a little bit sentimental
And a note to myself: no breakfast before 8:00 a.m. in the lowlands
many thanks to all organisors and attendees
I hope to see you soon again ... perhaps at Jork or Netherlands or Dunkeld or wherever it will appear
